Quoting Quiverfull: Willfully Misunderstanding What Freedom of Religion Is?

by the Patrick Johnson family - Johnson Family Ministry Blog - What's the Problem with Kentucky Governor Accommodating Kim Davis' Religious Beliefs?Editor's note: The very fact that Patrick Johnson has his nine year old son photobombing gay couples with a hateful sign says a lot about him beyond his misunderstanding of US constitutional law. He's claiming like so many others that the Freedom of Religion laws should be only to promote Christianity. This belief is particularly disgusting in light of the fact that Thanksgiving is in a few short days. Remember the Pilgrims? They left England in order to be able to practice what they believe without interference, not force their beliefs on … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Why Don’t Christians Protest Divorce Like They Do Gay Marriage?

by Tim Fall from his blog Tim's Blog - Just One Train Wreck After Another - Marriage Equality and No Fault Divorce - how do you rank them?Editor's note: This is actually a good question to ask of those out protesting or threatening to set themselves on fire over marriage equality. Jesus condemned divorce but they don't seem to care about that. Where are the lines? Why are so many so hypocritical on other issues? Why can't they see that treated homosexuals the same way you treat a divorced person is the right thing to do? … [Read more...]

Anthony Wayne Escalera Follows Dorothy Over The Rainbow Over Gay Pride Flag

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserSnark, sarcasm ahead!Over at the fundamentalist Christian Defending Contending blog, Mark Anthony Escalera had this to say: …After the flood, God created a rainbow to be His seal in the heavens. It was a declaration to show the mercy and longsuffering of God. The rainbow was His picture to a depraved world that while He would never again destroy the world with a flood, He would be coming again. The next time He comes, there will be no rainbows. There will only be fire and total destruction of ALL that stand opposed to Him.The true rainbow is made up of 7 different primary colors of a spectrum. It i … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control Is The Biggest Sin?

by Dale Ahlquist from Crisis Magazine and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - G. K. Chesterton: It's Not Gay, and it's Not MarriageEditor's note: Interesting how in the world of Evangelical Quiverfull the Catholics as a group are considered not even Christians or saved. They are despised, looked down upon, treated like dirt, but let one of them state something that lines up with Quiverfull theology and they are quoted as if they were also part of the Evangelical Quiverfull movement instead of despised persons. They hold their nose and quote the Catholic. Quiverfull is filled with dangerous contradictions like this. … [Read more...]

He hit all the big fears that run through fundamentalist Christianity, he invoked the straw boogie man. Evangelicals and Fundamentalists love to be afraid. … [Read more...]

by R.C. Sproul Jr as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Surrendering the Culture WarEditor's note: As best as I can tell Sproul and the ladies of LAF are claiming that they are being persecuted because of gay marriage becoming accepted by many Americans. Sproul goes on to say on his site that they now have to be willing to 'love' their neighbors and martyr themselves for truth.  That's some Olympic-style martyrbating mixed with a call for hatred disguised as love there buddy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Only For One Man & One Woman?

by Ken Ham from Answers in Genesis and as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Why is Marriage Just For Two?Editor's note: It always amuses me when Ham and LAF start banging away about one man and one woman being the Biblical standard for marriage when there was incest, polygamy, marriage after rape, wives and concubines and all sorts of suspicious couplings apparently approved of by God in the Old Testament. There's no evidence in the Bible to support what they are saying is the one true marriage. I love how comedian Betty Bowers outlines all the different types of Biblical marriages. … [Read more...]
